13/044 REPORTS FROM COUNTY AND DISTRICT COUNCILLORS
(VERBAL REPORT AT MEETING; COPY OF REPORT TO CLERK)
District Councillors Report
The new committee system has been formally adopted which should be more democratic.
The new committee system appears to be a more effective was of decision making. D/Cllr Brooks is now on the planning committee which means in certain cases will not be able to vote on Edwinstowe planning issues. D/Cllr Peck is a member of the economic development committee.
Both councillors have been working on individual casework.
County Councillors Report
Work on Lansbury Road has now started. C/Cllr Peck is still reporting potholes on a daily basis.
After many years of campaigning to bring the Robin Hood Line (currently in daily use at Thoresby Colliery) to Edwinstowe and to reopen the stations at Edwinstowe and Ollerton, NCC Highways have included the request in their future plan. There is still a considerable way to go but it is now in the plan. The Chairman of the Highways Committee is very much in favour and there will now be an update to the previous feasibility study.
The Parish Council is investigating the possibility of taking over the three village car parks to ensure that they will remain free. It is currently being taken to committee at N&SDC and then will be discussed at parish council level to establish the feasibility.
